The patties are nice enough and make good lunch box additions with some stir fried veg. Don't bother with the noodles as we don't feel they add anything. The patties are also good made with pork mince

I found the mixture was very sticky so I made burgers instead of smaller patties. I also served with a hot noodle stirfry done with loads of ginger lemon grass and garlic. My brother served his with chips tho and said it was delicious ;-)

I used turkey mince when I made this for the family. Such a lovely meal we all enjoyed it will defiantly make it again :-)

A delicious meal! I used ready-minced turkey and added ginger and dried chilli flakes to the pattie mix as I'm a spice lover. I griddled the patties which worked really well - lovely flavour on the outside but nice and moist inside. I've got a couple left in the freezer that were left over and I'm looking forward to eating them!

Do you think you could freeze these patties?

Yes they freeze really well

I like to replace Chilli sauce with Mango Chutney. I bake the patties in the oven instead of frying and maybe add some vegetables (e.g. half a carrot or 1/4 zucchini) to add more moisture.

I have made this recipe several times now and its a firm favourite for a simple midweek supper. I do play around with the seasoning ingredients depending on whether we fancy extra spice or more garlic etc. Every time its been a winner. Give it a go :-)

Delicious. Definitely needs the chilli sauce though

Whilst the mixture was in the food processor I also added a dash of soy sauce and red curry sauce for extra flavour and much needed moisture.
